Saving Desire

Traditional Christian theology has generally treated desire as a dark and negative force intimately related to sin — something to be restricted and repressed, closeted and controlled. But, according to LeRon Shults and Jan-Olav Henriksen’s Saving Desire, we see only part of the picture if we do not also perceive that desire can be a powerful force for great good.

Grounding their work firmly in the experiential realm of human life, the eight eminent theologians contributing to this volume celebrate together the positivity, the sociality, and the physicality of saving desire — that is, humankind’s innate desire not only for the “good life” but also, more vitally, for the life-transforming goodness of God.
